The In Vitro Meat Cookbook

The In Vitro Meat Cookbook visualizes recipes and visually explores the possibilities of clean, or cultured meat, that may be available to humanity one day. The In Vitro Meat Cookbook was written by Koert van Mensvoort, and was officially published on October 21, 2014.

The In Vitro Meat Cookbook — 45 lab grown meat recipes you can not cook yet, was written by Koert van Mensvoort, and published by BIS Publishers on October 21, 2014. The book visually explores what may be possible in the future with clean, cultured, or in vitro meat, and discusses the future of meat. Koert van Mensvoort discusses how without in vitro (clean) meat, by 2050 there will be over 9 billion people living on earth, and our planet will not have the carrying capacity to produce meat at a scale that meets the global demand for meat in 2050. Koert van Mensvoort made The In Vitro Meat Cookbook to inspire thought and discussion around the topic of in vitro, or clean meat. Within the book readers can find 45 recipes, and visualizations of these recipes, that may be possible one day using cellular agriculture and clean meat technologies.
